Howling Caterpillar a “regular” on our Native American Thread sent us this recipe for your enjoyment
IMBOLC GOOEY BUTTER CAKE:
16 oz Pound Cake mix
1 stick Butter, melted
2 Eggs, slightly beaten
8 oz Cream Cheese, softened
16 oz (1 lb box) Powdered Sugar
1 1/2 Tbsp Vanilla
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. For the crust, combine Pound Cake mix, melted Butter and 2 Eggs with a fork until moist. Spread into a ungreased 9X13 inch pan. Pat the crust mixture in the bottom of the pan and slightly up the sides.
In a separate bowl, beat the Cream Cheese and Powdered Sugar together for 3 minutes with an electric mixer on high. Turn the mixer down to low and add Eggs and Vanilla. Mix well. Pour over the crust and bake for 35-40 minutes. You can sprinkle some more Powdered Sugar over the top of the cake after baking.
Howling Caterpillar’s Naniamo or Picasso Egg Recipe
2 Cups Oreo cookie crumbs (I hammered a bunch of Oreos)
1/2 Cup Chopped Pecans ( I hammered them up a bit too)
1/2 Cup Brown Sugar
1/2 Cup Melted Butter.
Combine Ingredients, then mould into egg-sized balls. Place balls on a cookie sheet with wax paper. Refrigerate for one hour.
2 Cups Icing Sugar (Confectionary Sugar)
1 Cup Custard Powder (I used a pack of Vanilla Pudding)
1/2 Cup Softened Butter
Dribble Milk into this mixture to make a thick icing. Mould this around the eggs. Refrigerate for an hour.
Melt 8 squares of semisweet chocolate in a double boiler. Using 2 spoons quickly dip the eggs into the chocolate to cover. Refrigerate until hard.
I used my little dipper mini crock pot to melt a whole bad of candy melts that you use to make chocolate lollipops. If I was gonna do these again, I’d use an egg shaped mould or shape them using 2 spoons.
I came out with 14 at the end, but that could go either way…
Both of these came out of the Llewellyn’s Witches’ Date Book.
Thanks Howling Caterpillar for these recipes.

Her other store is A Kiwisilkie. Here is a “taste” from that shop:
The Howling Caterpillar/Akiwisilkie resides in Weymouth, MA and says, ”
I’m 45 years old, married and have a teenaged son. I also have a pet hen, Obelisk the Tormentor, a Black and White Leghorn, and 2 tanks of fish: a community tank with a Pleco named Pharaoh, a Skunk Botia named Stinky, and 1 Zebra Danio. It also now has 3 Goldfish: a White Oranda, a Celestial and a Bubble Eye. The last tank I’m the foster mom for. It has swords, a cory, a pleco, tetras and a frog.
We know Obelisk, the Tormentor, well. She comes to our parties and leaves her prints around our campfire. You can see her portrait in our Pets from the Campfire section.
